Sunday December 8, 1935

(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)

Joe Finley Provine joined the church.   Took the Palmero, Pauline to dinner.   Lenore, Alyce Claire and I did.  Mary Oronby went with to Grady’s.  Then to see Will Rogers in “In Old Ky”  Heard “Messiah” at 5. Packed house. Magnificient program – Very well directed and rendered.  Took Pauline to Dester – Grand Moonlight night-

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:


The Anglo-French proposal known as the Hoare–Laval Pact was agreed upon, in which Abyssinia would be partitioned and much of its territory given to Italy. The two delegations informed the media that they had come up with a plan, but withheld the details so the interested governments could review them.


Houston, Texas was ravaged by flood, causing hundreds to flee their homes.
